saw slow downs. apple and samsung, we love these companies because they had no europe last year, in china, no mexico. now we wish they had all three and there was business formation. let's focus on the other half of the equation. it's a little. where the money is going. last night china heads to one more marketable session. holy cow, courtesy of new attitude. the gold double digit growth is taking up the fxi. follow along, but it is taking up to the ancillary chinese place, like coach. did you see that today. rallying more than $2. we are seeing steady names in big commons. totalling chinese demand, truck demand. this one won't stop climbing. i say watch starbucks which is a gigantic expansion. i think it's going terrific clee. and that stock is taking a hit because of disassociation with the people's of republic, it's coming back strong. nike was hurt but that's becoming a thing of the past and buyers are piling in. the worst is over for certain at least in china. how about winn? nonetheless, steve win has put a lot of resources into mack could you macou. things are getting bet

"mad money" with jim cramer starts right now. >>> i'm jim cramer. and welcome to my world. >> you need to get in the game. going out of business and he's nuts! they're nuts! they know nothing! i always like to say there's a bull market somewhere. "mad money," you can't afford to miss it. hey, i'm cramer. welcome to "mad money," welcome to cramerica. other people want to make friends, trying to save you a little money. my job is not just to entertain but to educate and put things in perspective. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. not everything in the market can be explained by cold hard facts. not everything is rational or even cut and dried or it can even be ascertained with close scrutiny. including today where the dow vaulted 67 points s&p advanced, nas
whether to be like samsung or those guys in nokia that just slashed the dividend. and what we heard wednesday from apple and last night from samsung is a tale of woe that you could argue says smartphones have become saturated. everybody who needs a smartphone has one and now they're even trading down, not even buying expensive smartphones. qualcomm has got a heavy burden as it's going to have to tell us if that's the case, if there really is saturation. it has to tell us because it's the semiconductor brain for so much of the next generation of smartphones. this is the most important call of the week. and it might be when you can start buying apple if it hasn't bottomed by then. not that i want you in it but people do keep asking me. and please understand that apple is going from growth stock to value stock and that's often an ugly journey. okay? there's clip joints along the road and a lot of speed traps you know, the with r5idar guns. thursday is a day made for "mad money." and we think lightning could strike, possibly more than once. we have said recently that three companies who
that samsung has come on very strong. when you go to a resaler, the sales for samsung are much stronger than they used to be. i think this shift has got to be acknowledged. as henry blodgett said, the stock is inexpensive. when you have something that is old news, new news, it doesn't matter, there is a continuing recognition that something is just not as great at apple that it used to be. >> i think we can make the argument all day and all night, the valuation, cash on hand, dividend that apple is paying. at the same time you can make that case for a lot of other tech stocks out there. they pay a dividend and yet the stocks don't move much anymore. and i'm thinking of like a microsoft, for instance. >> well, i was just reiterating what henry was saying. >> right. >> i feel that, again, there's a lot of things that are subtly wrong with apple. the new itune iteration is just hated. i don't know a soul who likes it. it's very clear that there are real issues involving the ipad mini and whether it's as exciting as it used to be. there is no omg factor. it's just -- frankly, as my daughter said
the way to the bank. apple has real competition from samsung. with an android operating system with the visionaries from google. sure the market's big, but samsung's beating apple in cell phone share and perhaps more important, apple's phones may not be good enough to take that share back. tablets are terrific. but apple's lost the invinceability that extends to the tablet market. apple has compounded the problem by releasing a faulty map app, a new cord, and i like the old one, and a disliked itunes iteration. it's no longer the only game in town. amazon's total addressable market if it can perfect same-day delivery, which it is going to do with all of these warehouses, is literally all of retail, everything, everything sold at costco, walmart, supermarket, department store, food store, hardware store around the globe. maybe one day selling houses and boats if u.p.s. can figure out a way to deliver them. the addressable market may be no longer than the personal computer and cell phone replacement segment. and many think in a few years, those markets will be saturated. nobody w
for the oleds? >> we already are. we supply glass for use in o leds by small form factor like samsung phones. you saw consumer electronics. we make a glass for them. we have the potential of our willow glass, the ultrathin bendable glass to be used in oleds. we're expecting to see that come. liz: fascinating to watch the glass bend. we could see that you can actually, david, bend it. it is so cool. fascinating to see the ingunt, the american ingupt, -- ingenuity, for a company that has been around. my mom had corning ware. remember the dishs? it morphed into quite the business of the as you look at a global business such as corning, you look at currency fluctuations. analysts are a little concerned about this. you have a very weak yaen and some issues that do face you are these currency fluctuations. how are you hedging? how are you going to manage that? are you going to change your strategy? >> we've always disclosed the impact to the end to our investors and analysts. this doesn't come as a surprise. liz: right. >> i think it was the very sharp weakening of the yen from 80 to 90 in the mon
is the next step? you're 35 different names and brands. everybody from samsung. you're in apple. you're in what else? >> 35 different brands. we are now designed in over a thousand device. for the first time in 2012 we sold over a billion dollars in revenue. >> that's freight. >> terrific milestone for us. fastest business in corning ever to get to a billion dollars. we think the next wave of growth for us started with phones. went to slates. will be notebooks next. these are two examples. lenovo thinkpad. and this is a dell. >> so and it is just specialty glass. >> they're capable. they're touch-enabled. i think what you're going to see a lot of different form factors. the dell for example, you can use this either as a pc or a slate. >> or as slate you can pull that up. you've got the glass contract for that? >> correct. >> i would imagine that is huge? >> correct. the issue with notebooks. you tend to pick them up like this you need strong glass also. a little demo. you always want to break glass. i will let you do that this year. >> i'm obnoxious. i like to do this stuff. >> safet
on your apple hat, all right? they would rather do business with samsung's chip, even though samsung is their biggest competitor, than switch to intel. >> what are we missing? there's uniform negativity here. we'll look back on it at end of this year and say, wait a second, we should have thought of that. >> don't throw that. >> that pc was bad, and they had every right to go out the window. all right, i've calmed down. >> there's no hope? >> anytime you have that budget, you can do it. i like stacy very much. it's a great manufacturer. there's hope. >> okay. >> there's hope. same level of hope. silver lining theory i call it. >> okay. when we come back, a wall street analyst known for being a longtime bear on netflix. and from textbook reynolds to the linked-in for college students, we'll talk to former yahoo! ceo. [ "i'm only human" plays ] humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident forgiveness if you qualify, where your rates won't

in to kick ap putt at the moment. an article saying is samsung the new call. the advertising campaign was five or six years old saying, android is outselling apple, which we've known for an awfully long time. as ceo, as head of the pr, marketing director, how do you stop that sort of comment dead in its tracks? is it about offering bigger dividends or something more profound? >> well, you know, one of the things i like tim cook has been saying is, we're not about maximizing market share, which maybe sounds like a crazy idea, we're about maximizing customer experience. and we want customers to love our products. that's what got them in the winner's circle in the first place. that's the only thing that enables any mobile phone company, any technology company to keep on going at this tremendous pace. >> sidney -- >> i think you have to -- >> i'm sorry. i didn't mean to interrupt you. i just want to bring in jeffrey. we had a problem with the camera at yale. and now he's now joining us on the phone. jeffrey, what is your view? what should tim cook do here to reinvigorate apple? >> well, y
there is also a subsidy for the samsung galaxy. when you've only got two devices to choose from, not enough competition for these carriers to say, no, we're not going to pay that much. that certainly would seem to be something here that investors are going to continue to pay attention to. the margins are the key here. we'll see. high multiple stock, 15 times, does have a nice dividend as you point out. investors may be looking closely at the margin number for their guidance for the year, despite what are some positive comments. >> we love the stuff. how does it change. how does the metric change. if we look at the fios numbers, they start making money on the dvr, no, now it's just wireless. >> you don't want to forget about the other important parts of the business. there's a wire line business, and that's where they took the sandy charge in terms of the wire line. the positive effects from the union deal that will start to be felt this year. but wireless is the key for this company. it's what moves the stock. it is the most important component by far. this is a giant player that has had ex
samsung crushing the competition. you ask is apple next. i bring this up, because, of course, several -- you know, a couple months ago we saw the case. >> yeah. >> about how we heard samsung might be driven from business because apparently their smartphones copied from the iphone. but things seem to be going really, really well for them right now. >> well, that litigation is outstanding. but, you know, and ongoing, i should say. but in the rest of the world, it's not so important. that's number one. number two, it's not possible that the u.s. government is going to shut samsung down from distributing phones in the united states. not going to happen. and samsung is beating apple and smartphones and the rest of the world. they're neck and neck in the united states. and droids are a very, very compelling product versus these iphones. >> -- >> the galaxy note 2. apple has already reported they're ordering less supplies, they think demand is dipping. everyone you talk to seems to like samsung. and now people say blackberry has a chance to survive with the blackberry 10. it's funny how in a
ago. you look at the third-quarter share loss. 14.6% down from 23% a year ago. you look at samsung's growth, and samsung at 31% of worldwide shipments, from 8.8%. so we're seeing these two sort of cross paths here with samsung on the upswing, samsung yesterday reporting a record year, and apple on the down side. >> how long is tim cook going to subsidize its biggest enemy, samsung, and not go to taiwan semiconductors? do something about this south korean invasion. samsung is apple around the world. >> no doubt about it. took that nice train from london to paris. it goes a lot faster than amtrak, just so you know. >> does it lose money every year? >> no apple iphones to be found. but you saw a lot of galaxiegal >> you know, i've got to tell you, apple, wow, what a powerful hurt it's being put on a lot of people. this was one of those stories that everybody owns, and now everybody's saying, what the heck. >> right. >> got to break some news here with mary thompson. i think she's back at headquarters, news on aig. >> as we all know, the company's board is meeting today. and evidently
lots of people who bought apple when it was the undisputed king of smartphones. samsung, got that great operating system, android, google. it's good enough so customers don't have to pay up for the iphone and the big phone companies are happy to steer customers there because they make more money selling samsung than apple. people who bought apple because of the chart. it was a stock that kept going higher, so the analysts kept raising targets, numbers. but once the stock started going down, the charts became the enemy. a virtuous circle became a vicious cycle down, chart became your enemy and that means the same people who had raised their price targets on the way up are now busy cutting them on the way down. and there'll be many, many more heard from tomorrow morning. sellers have been taking profits or losses, frankly, if they bought it too high either because they're trying to follow the discipline of not turning a gain into a loss, that's what i did for my charitable trust, follow along. we cut our position in half so we could play with the house's money. still stings, though, but y
other companies, gross margins, something made by a samsung, for heaven sake. i thought they were like a steel company. the stock is reacting to how much money is being made on each item. the dreaded nitpick of gross margins. that nasty number that inferiors, competitors are suddenly making superior product at least in the mind of some of the less savvy consumers out there, the superior. what must be going to apple is the fact these analysts actually think they need ammo to stay positive, ammo to do something as simple as breathing, which is to reiterate the buy ratings. i can see tim cook turning to his colleagues puzzled saying, it's as if we have to come up with something breakthrough, something dazzling for them beyond what's obvious. which is how great we are. but at some point, your company's products may face genuine competition. in many places on earth, other companies may be taking share, which is what's happening with that samsung phone. or you might have product lines in decline like the iphone. like the ipad. and it's a funny thing, when that happens, you actually do need t
screen samsung. watch movies. >> you want to make phone calls. >> like the old days. >> the point does appear to be, i think credit suisse, somebody said, daunting challenge. fair? >> yes. >> the rest of the world has not stood still. >> the only reason, when the i phone came out, i switched the next day. i went over to verizon, said do you have it? it's not that, right? it's not a -- boom. omg. no omg. >> evolutionary. >> by the way, tomorrow is the big january jobs number. of course, that means another chance for you to nail the number. tweet us your predictions for january non-farm payrolls or handles at squawk street, #nail the number. the prize this month will make feel nice and cozy in time for valentine's day. it is a blanket, autographed by the "squawk on the street" gang. you will have one minute before the friday release to tweet your predictions. best of luck. none of us have used the blanket. >> pristine. pristine. which may be a draw, may not be a draw. i don't know. >> hold it. >> make a sweet valentine's day gift, i'm sure, for someone. >> also the end of the month, cram
carefully before investing. >>> welcome back to "squawk" this morning. making headlines, samsung electronics says it's likely earned a quarterly profit of $8.3 billion, selling about 500 handsets a minute. samsung also benefiting from a pickup in demand for flat screens it makes for mobile devices, including those for rival apple products. but some analysts say investors are concerned samsung's momentum may slow in the first half. also at ces they're selling a $20,000 television that starts -- >> what? >> the new tvs start at 60 inches and go up to 100. >> 85? >> i heard about it. >> 85, that's -- >> life size at some point? >> oh, no. we wanted -- >> right. >> it will be in like two years. >> wait. that would be -- it would be more expensive to remodel your living room. >> now to sports and i like the sweater. i like you in that sweater. that's the sweater. >> i was in wisconsin when you said that i wore -- >> i don't think the guy could wear a sweater. but you're casual. you got the casual, almost a suito jean type thing going on. >> do a couple interviews in the field today and this is wh
. >> the competitor samsung, i keep thinking about the european trip, and you saw samsung there. >> i did. i got a lot of tweets on that, too, saying, you know, come on. >> you're breaking -- >> they have iphones over there, too. >> on "usa today," in front of the business section, all about apple losing their cool again. samsung, meantime, crossing in the 100 million unit mark in the galaxy. >> do you also throw out the suppliers with this, with the momentum downward? do you throw out the names like broadcom and qualcomm, which is both on android and apple? if apple is losing handsets to samsung, broadcom would pick that up. >> everything's so tainted. qualcomm, 4g, 5g, doesn't matter, you're going to need their chips. arm holdings downgraded today. the apple complex, which was so great when momentum was terrific, is, of course, in reverse momentum. i think people don't know what to do. there's a lot of people who came in to apple between 500 and 700, because i think many things seem like they're going great. and they don't know what to do, other than criticize people who wonder whether it's as great

component orders, other empirical metrics about the popularity versus samsung have changed dramatically. what's true? >> i think there's a combination, you know, of both, carl. i think what you saw was probably back in september, the stock got way ahead of itself. today i think the pessimism is, you know, too great. i think probably the stock is a fair value, around 600, 600 to $700 range. keep in mind, this is a technology company. as we move along the technology cycle, competition is going to come in. google's android and samsung are very formidable competitors. this is going to continue to happen. we'll see margins deteriorate at some point. that's the debate. when do you see those margins start to fall off. we don't think that's right now. >> we've seen it, channing. we've seen it. margins have peaked with the iphone 3gps. it's a decline we've seen for months and months. it sounds like your sentiment has also changed. even if it's just the margins, at what valuation do you think apple should be trading right now? it's not the valuation it was trading at when it was $700, according t
such as samsung. apple has dipped below the $500 mark in premarket trading this morning and that's the first time that's happened since last february 16th. so, it's like a roller coaster. i don't know if it comes back up the other way, though. >> why don't we talk about some of other other headlines as well. oracle has released an emergency update to its widely used java web blousing software after the u.s. government urged pc users to disable java last week because of a security vulnerability. oracle says the fix addresses two issues. some experts say the fix does not deal with the other flaws. >>> also bankrupt hostess is selling six bread brands to rival flour foods for $390. that includes wonder bread. hostess has not yet announced winning bidders for its snack brands but that is expected to take place within the next few weeks. >>> and finally u.p.s. is abandoning a nearly $7 billion deal to buy amsterdam's tnt express. that comes on word that european regulators would have rejected the deal as currently -- as it was currently set up. u.p.s. had first offered to buy tnt. europe's secretary l
